Boston Massacre, Part II

Yikes. Yikes yikes yikes.

The AL East race is about over following the Yankees' sweep of the Red Sox this weekend, at Fenway, in a rare five-game series. They've already turned against Theo Epstein in Boston, it appears, putting Simmons' whole "Five Year Grace Period" theory in serious jeopardy.

On the bright side, though, the Twins are now just one game out of the wild card lead after taking 2 of 3 from the White Sox in their weekend series. And even better than that, Francisco Liriano may very well be back in early September.

One last Yanks/Sox note: Check out this great piece in the NYT on finding the exact border between Yankees and Red Sox territory.
